ABOUT

I play bass.
I would like to be involved in a country or rock band.

Historically I played in Portuguese Wedding bands in the 80's.
I have been playing rhythm guitar since I was 18.
I have been playing bass as well for years and love country, rock, classic rock and hair band.
I can sing background a little.
I'm at vhelvin at g mail
or (9) 484*6049

The recording I list were of my band done recorded on my cell phone sitting on my bass amp at Rehearsal Factory in Mississauga. The influences were songs we would hash over and rehearse.
